I can find documentation on "reason code 5" being issued in only two circumstances.  The first, is when a partition mismatch occurs.  Since you don't seem to be having issues anywhere else we can probably safely ignore this one.

The other is when DB2 can not communicate with a .net interpreter.  Here's IBM's blurb:

SQLCODE -4301, SQLSTATE 58004, reason code 5 or 6

An error occurred while attempting to start or communicate with a .NET interpreter. DB2 was unable to load a dependent .NET library [reason code 5] or a call to the .NET interpreter failed [reason code 6].

Ensure that the DB2 instance is configured correctly to run a .NET procedure or function (mscoree.dll must be present in the system PATH). Ensure that db2clr.dll is present in the sqllib/bin directory, and that IBM.Data.DB2 is installed in the global assembly cache. If these are not present, please ensure that the .NET Framework version 1.1, or a later version, is installed on the database server, and that the database server is running DB2 version 8.2 or a later release.


Based on your description, it would appear that your 8.1 system doesn't support the function and you'll need to upgrade to 8.2.

Good Luck,
Kent
